Fractured Triangles Quilt Pattern Tutorial

One of my 2020 goals is to create more video tutorials showing my process for creating quilts.  So, I created a video tutorial  while I was making a new version of my Fractured Triangle pattern in a very different colorway from my original version.

Here’s the original pattern showing my first colorway. Click HERE to purchase the pattern.

I had testers who made wonderful variations when I published the pattern–see their work in my earlier post.

In my new version, I decided not to use a single fabric for negative space.  Instead, I wanted a maximalist palette–lots of saturated bold color. (Click here to read about maximalism as an emerging trend in modern quilting.)

Another of my 2020 goals is to work from my stash as much as possible.  Here’s the set of strips from my stash that inspired the palette–I only used some of this set.  The rest went into another new quilt for my Rail Fence Improv pattern.  I’ll post that tutorial at a later date.

Kona New Classic Palette RU-228-41.

Here’s the focus print–I had some leftover yardage from a commissioned quilt project that fit perfectly:

This is Good Vibes by Shayla Wolf for Windham Fabrics. Available online and in local quilt shops. Link here to see the whole line. 
Piles of triangles ready to put into strips.  The pattern gives you instructions for achieving an improv look without tedious piecing!


It was fun to work maximalist!  

Here’s a link to the 60 degree triangle ruler that I use.
